The American Fallen Soldiers Project

Dear SoupFriends,

Greetings from the SoupMan!

I have the honor and privilege of telling you about an amazing non-profit agency called: THE AMERICAN FALLEN SOLDIERS PROJECT (AFS). Their mission is to honor, respect and forever remember those who have sacrificed their lives protecting our freedom while serving in our Armed Forces.

We live in a country where we to easily banter about the word 'hero.' Sometimes we even refer to our sports personalities as heroes. I think not! The real heroes are the men and women of the Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for us everyday. Sadly these real heroes are sometimes too quickly forgotten. To make matters worse their grieving families are left to pick up the pieces.

AFS Project provides, at no cost to the families, an exquisitely framed original portrait of their fallen loved one that fully captures their appearance and personality.

By providing this portrait to the grieving families the American Fallen Soldiers Project not only makes a lasting impact on the family but is also provides them a sense of life and the presence of the fallen American hero on canvas. Even more important these portraits provide a lasting testament to those fallen soldiers who have faithfully served our country and paid the ultimate price.

As the SoupMan I am blessed to serve as the Executive Director of the SoupMobile serving the homeless in the Dallas area. As an average American who loves his country, I feel honored to recommend and support The American Fallen Soldiers Project. However I want you to know that I have no vested interest in supporting AFS. I am not on their Board of Directors, or on their payroll or receiving any kinds of benefits/perks whatsoever from them. What I do get by supporting them is a warm feeling in my heart that money just can't buy.

Want to know more about AFS. Well the SoupMan has made it simple for you. Simply go to our website: http://www.soupmobile.org and click on the LINK to the American Fallen Soldiers Project. You to can get that warm feeling in your heart by recognizing and honoring the real heroes of our great country.

May the Lord bless and keep you all.
